The trials of the suspects charged with involvement in the October 12th bombing will commence in Bali's capital city of Denpasar in late April 2003.
As of March 19, some 35 members of the mass media have applied for accreditation issued by the provincial police of Bali. Among those applying include NHK Ė Japan, British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), and various news organizations from Australia and Holland.
According to Bali police authorities, 200 press ID cards have been prepared for various media wishing to cover the legal proceedings. Currently, print media are being limited to two ID's per publication with a maximum 3 ID's reserved for each television news crew.
The back-to-back trials will be held at Jakarta main courthouse in downtown Denpasar and at the nearby Narigraha building that has undergone extensive modifications to accommodate the trials.
